  • Purusha Yoga (3729 Balboa) is opening a new community patio space out behind their studio. This Saturday, December 1st, they’re hosting a Art Open and Community Benefit Bash to celebrate from 4pm until 8pm. Stop by to view some art, listen to music, enjoy food and wine and more. After 8pm, they’ll light up a fire and celebrate a new community mural that was installed by Carla Elise. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased online or at the event. Proceeds benefit their sister non-profit, the Purusha Seva Project.
